Join us at this July 4th celebration for a weekend of adrenaline and exploration. We are taking the party to city of Ottawa, the capital of Canada, for North America's highest Bungee Jumping, stunning outdoor rock climbing/hiking, and some of Ottawa's finest sightseeing and nightlife.  In order to participate, you MUST have a PASSPORT to enable you to get to Canada (or a Nexus card, or enhanced driver’s license).


Bungee Jumping

At Great Canadian Bungee, you'll find one of the world's most spectacular and unique Bungee Jumping site at 200ft, highest offered in North America. Visualize an amphitheater of solid limestone, 200 ft. high, surrounding a 160 ft. deep aqua-blue, spring-fed lagoon, larger than 3 football fields. Here is the pricing and related details: https://www.bungee.ca/en/about/pricing.html ($78 + tax - if we have a group of more than 10 people)

Outdoor Rock Climbing / Hiking

Accompanied by some of the most breathtaking views, the Eardley Escarpment at Gatineau Park offers 64 climbing routes. Also, there are 165 kilometres of hiking trails, with something for everyone whether you are a beginner or an avid hiker. Seven trails offer interpretation along the way.

    Hi Lois, is it okay if I just tag along with you guys in Ottawa but don't participate in the bungee jumping / rock climbing? I went to middle and high school in Hamilton, ON and just love everything Canadian!

    I just saw that we have reserve ahead for both bungee jumping and the zip line. Are we going to reserve as a group, or do we need to call individually? Also I'm interested in carpooling - anyone else?

      Definitely! I'm in Farmington Hills, but could meet pretty much anywhere. I'd prefer to be a rider and help with gas, beer or whatever, if possible. Anyone else?

    • Lois & J.

      As time comes closer, people will start to arrange for carpool.
